needed between about 20 Jul and 20 Sep 2008 for a seabird monitoring project at the Barren Islands, Alaska. We will collect information on breeding success and population size of
common murres, black-legged kittiwakes, tufted puffins, and fork-tailed
storm-petrels; on diets of murre and puffin chicks; and on growth rates
of storm-petrel and puffin chicks. Some of the work will be conducted by
observing cliff-nesting birds with binoculars; we will also manually
survey burrow-nesters and weigh and measure chicks. The crew of four
will live at a field camp on the island and commute to study areas in a
small boat and by hiking. Some basic rock climbing and rappelling are
necessary (training provided). This position offers excellent
opportunities for viewing seabirds and other wildlife, but conditions
are often windy, cool, and damp. Applicants should be in excellent
physical condition, able to make careful observations over long periods
of time, and able to work and live happily in this environment. We
provide airfare (within the U.S.), food, lodging, and required
equipment. Please send a cover letter and resume (including the names,
phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of 3 references) to ARTHUR KETTLE,
